Re: Life Expectancy of a PCP rifle?
16 YEARS OF SERVICE on a used PCP! (See KevinG note) Even with repairs sounds pretty good. $850 including the gun for that long doesn't sound bad to me.
Time for a new one or repairs and taking care to be gentle with the old beast? Read up and learn to replace seals yourself?
" Last night, I went to shoot it again and it did not want to cooperate going into battery - seating a pellet. I jammed it forward and the valves blew out again."
